As a college student, job searching can seem confusing and overwhelming. As an NSCS member, we know you are looking for both a top company and a work environment that has high ethical standards, values innovation, and provides everyday challenges.

Winter Break is the perfect time to think about your career and begin the research phase of your job search. Think about where you want to work as well as what benefits are of interest to you? Maybe you want to travel like the Member Engagement Managers at NSCS or have the opportunity to manage your own book of business as a Financial Representative at New York Life. Knowing what motivates and interests you will make you a more informed job seeker and interviewer.

In keeping with our commitment to lifetime NSCS members, we strive to provide career resources and professional development opportunities within your field. NSCS partners with Universum Employer Branding to provide the 2013 Career Benchmark Survey which is a great way to be proactive in your job search from the time you get on campus through your graduation. NSCS members are able to express their interest in specific companies and motivational drivers for success. By participating, your voice and opinions will be directed to hundreds of companies nationwide who want to hire top candidates, like you.
